Océ, a Canon Group company, pioneered the first big breakthrough in digital newspaper printing in 2001.
Its system of printing on demand at local sites cut out crippling distribution costs while still offering distant readers the tactile and visual pleasures of a physical newspaper. The content was sent over the web via super-fast internet connections and the newspaper could be printing minutes later.
Partnering with Stroma Digital Printers, Océ unveiled the world’s first commercial digital newspapers plant in London in May 2001. It was the gateway to opening other newspaper sites across the world under the Océ Digital Newspaper Network.
An even greater breakthrough, one that is helping to change the face of newspaper publishing, came last year with inkjet technology that enables the printing of newspapers quickly and cost effectively digitally for the first time in colour.
For Stroma, it’s now expanded its titles from eight black and white to a choice of 1400 different titles.
It runs between 50 and 60 titles per day, using the Océ JetStream 1000 system. This is part of a market-leading family of continuous feed colour production presses from Océ, which has the most comprehensive suite of production inkjet technologies in the marketplace.
